PLUG INTO THE RESISTANCE! 3 MAJOR ACTIONS +LIVE MUSIC
Joy of Resistance will be interviewing the organizers of three upcoming major women’s resistance actions against the incoming Trump Administration and providing you with the information you’ll need to know more about and plug into these and other events.
We’ll also feature, live-in-studio, original resistance music by Judy Gorman to get us into the resistance mood!
The major actions we’ll be covering in depth, are:
1) THE JANUARY 21 WOMEN’S MARCH ON WASHINGTON
Our new Associate Producer Farah Diaz-Tello will host a special segment with organizers of the January 21 Women’s March on Washington. The segment will include the evolution of the march from its somewhat troubled beginning until now; comparisons with the 2004 March for Women’s Lives and recorded listener messages in which people talk about why they will be marching.
We’ve set up a hotline number for you to call and record your message. The number is: (347) 829-4226. We’ll play some of your messages on the show on Sunday!
2) THE JANUARY 20/21 WOMEN’S STRIKE DURING INAUGURATION WEEKEND
We’ll have guests from National Women’s Liberation, the group organizing the Women’s Strike. They’ll discuss the reasons they called the strike, what the demands are, and why they think women should strike–against both paid and upaid labor–during January 20 and 21 over the weekend of the inauguration.
3) THE “REFUSE FASCISM” CAMPAIGN TO STOP TRUMP-PENCE
We’ll have Sunsara Taylor of refusefascism.org in the studio to talk about the month of resistance to STOP Trump and Pence BEFORE they can take power; the full page ads they have published in newspapers around the country (including the New York Times), upcoming actions of the campaign, the response so far and how you can be part of and support this campaign.
Throughout the show we’ll be giving you information on how you can plug into these–as well as other– events.
That’s Sunday, January 8, 6-7 PM. Joy of Resistance–“Women’s Resistance Central.”
TOGETHER WE ARE STRONG
